A perseguição contra os judeus é antiga - infelizmente
Sou brasileiro e a maioria de meu povo é formado por judeus que foram forçados a se converter à doutrina da igreja católica romana.
Portugueses e Espanhóis, base da população brasileira, eram judeus que foram forçados a se converter cristãos pela igreja católica romana.
Esse fato é escondido pela igreja romana até hoje, mas graças a Deus, meu povo está despertando e muitos já conhecem sua origem judaica. Em breve o Brasil será, como deve ser, a maior nação judaica do planeta, fora de Israel.
Negar nossa origem judaica é o mesmo que negar a história do planeta. Somos todos descentes de judeus, não tem como negar isso.

Anti-Semitism has no place on this site
It is beyond disturbing that two of the three reviews posted here are anti-Jewish and use a century-old film as an excuse to cast aspersions on a huge group of people numbering in the millions. It's even sadder because this looks like a site geared to thoughtful, artistic people. Go back to Yahoo News.
Jews have inverted history. Everything they accused the Germans of doing is actually what they were doing to the Russian Christians. Over 100 million Russian Christians killed by Bolshevik Jews leading up to WW2. Over 10 million surrendered Germans starved to death after WW2. 1-2 million on American soil. Look up the Eisenhower Death camps. Don't believe what they say no matter how nice these wolves in sheep clothing try to act. They blamed muslims for 9/11 just like they're currently blaming china for Covid

classic silent movie
Rabbi Loew is an elderly tyrannic single family-father, hobby-astronomer and future-teller. He sees the whole jewish community threatened. The movie doesn't mainly appear as a narrative about anti-semitism to me, although the emperor bans all jews from the city-territory and sets an ultimatum for their leave with an edict. They are said to 'endanger the lives and property of their fellow-men, practise black magic and disrespect christianity'.
The plot is not shown in correct chronological order. Rabbi Loew, the old insane clay-head made up and made his alter ego, the Golem, from clay as an excuse for his own violent derailments and threats against his family. So it looks pretty much like a story about domestic violence, also featuring some sort of love-affair between knight Florian, the bringer of the bad news and Loew's daughter Miriam. The hyperbolic symmetry in the story is between the jewish community and Loew's own family, he is generally seen to be like a father.
The Golem is presented to the public as the family's new servant, it has a pentagram on it's chest, not a David's star, that triggers it's activity. Loew brings the Golem to a festival at the castle, the rabbi's magic story-telling causes great laughter in the audience, but the Golem finally saves the show by keeping the roof of the building from collapsing, serving as a living pillar, so the jewish people is pardoned.
Back home Loew disables the Golem, when it starts turning against himself, but it is reactivated by his family-members, badly threatens Miriam and Florian, the knight is even killed and the family's house is set on fire while the rabbi does service at the synagoge. Unconscious Miriam is kidnapped by the demon, the fire destroys the whole house.
In the end the pentagram is taken from the Golem's chest by a small child, presumably it is off forever. The community thanks the rabbi for reinstalling safety for them, Loew thanks god.

point of view
Beyond another beautiful example of German Expressionism and Weimar cinema
for me the movie except its cinematographic value foretells what's coming for the
Jews in the years to come.Isn'it an irony for two reasons.First that it comes from a German director and second that today's Israelis (Jews) have unleashed their
contemporary Golem down in M.East.
I consider this as not a review but the humble opinion coming from a simple cinema
lover from Greece.
Different points of view accepted and appreciated
